Here's an interesting cultural conflict. St. Johns Episcopal Church in San Francisco is torn by a controversy over the Divine Rhythm Society, a group of ravers who have been using church facilities for a while. The conflict pits the ravers, who are largely younger and straight, against the traditional parishioners, who are largely older and gay, demonstrating how frequently members of the city's large gay community end up on the more conservative side of various controversies (to a degree I think would be surprising to anybody who lives in a place where the gay community isn't a social or political force).
